About Advent International

Advent International is one of the largest and longest serving independent private equity partnerships. Since our founding in 1984, we have invested $66 billion in over 395 private equity investments across 41 countries. While every company is different, our hands-on approach to helping these businesses flourish has remained a constant.

Ours is a long-term business built on trust, and we take great care to protect and enhance the open, honest and inclusive culture that will always define Advent International.

Great businesses are built on the back of many great ideas. That is why we’ve built Advent on solid cultural foundations that encourage open conversations between people at all levels of the firm irrespective of title or background. This respect for others’ viewpoint ensures that differences of opinion are respected and ultimately help drive better collective decisions. Ours has never been a firm of star names or big egos, we recognize that the best partnerships with management are built on trust and mutual respect.

“Advent International's sophomore summer internship is the perfect opportunity to learn more about private equity and business/finance in general. I learned a ton about how to value a company, how to complete due diligence, what makes a successful business, the specific industry I was in, and much more. But the best part is definitely the firm -- Advent has an amazing culture and all the people are amazing. Everyone was always willing to help me and answer any questions I had, but not to the extent where I didn't feel challenged or independent. Overall, I loved my experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in private equity!”
